So-called “photographer” never called nor showed up. I was just trying to help him out. If he didn’t really need the help he should’ve never posted the advertisement. This suspicious behavior exemplifies that most likely I can take better pictures using my point-and-click than he can with a professional camera (assuming he has one).
Moral of the story: Don’t assign a task (or agree to help) without a thorough background check. Not everyone has good follow-through skills or a good sense of responsibility
